Really beautiful images! I'm really impressed. It's still loading, but I really like it so far. That's three really's now! I can see how I would have done a few things differently but thats just personal taste things. I'm desperate for an M2 now. Checking you other work out now.

Good video, too bad the song is painfully long. There is probably a great 2:30 song in there! Video looks great, I love the low-key lighting in some of the scenes. As far as budget, you could pull this off pretty cheap I think...

location is really nice, its like a died out town or something. Did you have to close down the street for shooting or something?

Did you shoot it in HD on p2 cards and then downconverted in post, or you shot it in SD?

nice job, one of the best videost i've seen in this forum.

Andzei-

The location was a set in South Dallas previously dressed to make a section of a middle eastern city. The owner of the property, which was about 3 or 4 city blocks, liked it so much that he didn't want them to tear it down afterwards. He just now rents out the location to other productions. It gave us something to play with, visually. Of course looking down the street to the north, you can see Dallas' skyline... but almost every direction was a good shot. And yes, the streets were shut down for us. Although they don't have much traffic to begin with.

We shot in 720pn, on the P2 cards, which my assistant was constantly offloading and running back to me. We never had to wait on cards, because of him.

Thanks for watching, glad you liked it.

Looks nice.

Hi CJ,

Haven't seen your work in months, maybe years.
Happy to see something coming our way. Excellent work as usual.
Hope to see another short or a longer film someday

CJ, did you converted to SD before or after editing?
And what kind of device did you use to dump P2 cards?

thanks!

Ian - Haven't heard of them. To be honest, I'm a bit out of the loop as far as bands go. I've found it much more rewarding to just work on music videos as a hired gun rather than to hunting/finding bands and labels, convincing them of a concept then dealing with their drama. This way I can just focus on my job and avoid the client. =) Thanks for the compliments, I'm glad you liked the video.

Hugues - Thanks so much. I noticed "Hook" was at Tiburon & Shriekfest. I love both of those fests. Denise Gossett, who runs Shriekfest, is one of the nicest festival directors I've ever come across.
I'm currently working on larger projects... just takes time. Hopefully there will be something out this coming year. Thanks again.

Andzei - I actually haven't converted to SD yet. The file is just a web encoding straight from the HD master. For me, I always try to keep it at its source resolution then downconvert at the very last step if going out to digibeta or other SD formats.
As for dumping the p2 cards, my assistant used my apple powerbook connected to 2 Lacie 'Rugged' firewire bus powered drives. We have a duplicate of every file on set, then afterwards at the hotel we'd transfer to 2 larger drives and erase the portables. On this shoot, we had no errors and we never had to wait for cards. Having someone who's quick with the offload is very important. I could never justify the purchase for a P2 store or any other Panasonic hardware.

Thanks again for the feedback everybody.
